DOWNTOWN COFFEE HOUSE REOPENS

James Randall, better known as J.R., is the manager of the recently reopened Java Java coffee house on Chetco Avenue.

Brothers, Terry and Tim Patterson, new owners of KBSC TV, and the Redwood Theater, purchased the building that houses the TV station and decided it was time to reopen the coffee house.

Were thrilled to reopen it in a clean and cheerful manner, Terry Patterson said. We liked the name and decided to keep it, but everything else will be new.

Paintings of Brookings artist, Tom Moody, on the walls, music playing, an oriental rug on the floor, and friendly greetings, help provide a warm, inviting ambiance.

In addition to coffee, espresso, lattes, and sodas, the coffee house features homemade muffins, pastry and cheese cake and fruits.

We will add sandwiches and soup by winter, Randall said. Well pipe the fragrance outside, to entice people to come in.

Randall emphasized the need for patronage from local businesses and residents, especially in the winter months.

Its important to support each other, he said.

The coffee house will host bridge and chess players, and musicians.

Different things to involve the community, Randall said.

I needed a place to drink coffee, Terry Patterson said. He said the idea is to provide a place where people can sit and have a cup of coffee and talk.

On Fridays and Saturdays well have some sort of low-key guitar music, Patterson said.

We have a list of various musicians in town. And, well stay open at least until 10 p.m. on weekends, maybe until midnight when we have music. It will be a great addition, he said.

Java Java was open for business during the Azalea Festival weekend, but its official grand opening was last weekend. The opening was very successful, Randall said.

In addition to providing a warm and friendly atmosphere, the coffee house features a unique brand of coffee from Carmichael, Calif, found no place else in Oregon.

If you dont have good coffee, you cant make good espresso, Randall said.

The current special, in honor of Fathers Day, is the Sugar Daddy, a special mixture of cinnamon, and other enticing flavors.

Randall, who has had a number of different careers, including playing baseball for the Dodgers Salem A team in his earlier years, is delighted with his new job.

He recently returned to the United States after spending almost a year in Nicaragua, where he helped provide food, clothing and medication for poor families, he said.

An orphan, Randall said he grew up in Oregon, and when he returned to the U.S. he looked for a small town on the coast, and Brookings fit the bill.

After meeting Terry Patterson, and given the opportunity to manage the coffee shop, he is sure this is the place he belongs.

Ive met a lot of people and everybody is so friendly here, he said

He said he is looking forward to making many more new friends, both local residents and visitors, as he works to make the coffee shop a popular stop for all.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
